One of the main risks of walking around Kuala Lumpur is the ever-present threat of bag-snatchers. The local police and city council are taking the matter seriously as can be evidenced by this sign!
I'm sure it would make potential snatch-thieves think twice about taking another poor victims belongings...The high risk areas seem to be around Bukit Bintang and Changkat Bukit Bintang and both of these streets now have a more visible police prescence.
The parking jockeys along Changkat Bukit Bintang have been known to chase-down culprits and administer a little street-justice.
To be honest,I haven't heard of an instance for quite a while so the extra policing may be working...or maybe it's under-reported.
Anyway,it pays to be a little street-wise when walking around any city in the world,Kuala Lumpur is no different.
If you decide to go to the park,the sign above tells you what you can't do!
Perhaps a sign telling you what you can do would be easier to understand....
